The Life Force is strong with Marjorie, an SJCH employee, as she donated blood at our SJCH Blood Drive to benefit the Houchin Community Blood Bank. Thank you to all that donated today!

Just called to find out the status of my daughter, who has been waiting for three hours. The unprofessional rude Joanna gets an attitude with me. Really?! Her attitude matches all the negative reviews of that hospital! I guess if you are bleeding to death on the floor, than maybe they will actually care and do their job! The job we pay them to do. Unbelievable!

Great team, always busy because patients trust them. Wait is horrible but we were taken care of like a family. Compassionate care at a very high speed, when we went at the back of the ED, we were amazed of everyone moving fast and around. Great hospital.

Worst hospital EVER....I wanted to try it because I always go to MEMORIAL and they don't seem to really help me... But after being here I would gladly go back to Memorial and realized they help me more than I realize...because at least they take u back and give u a bed and get ur pain under way and check u, examine you and make sure your ok before they release you...At San Joaquin they do it very weird...they start ur registration..then u sit down for a couple hours..they they take ur vitals..then u sit down then a couple ours they see u in the nurses station and order tests..then u go back and sit down...and then u get the tests then wait for the results for another 4 hours....My experience was horrible...I had horrible issues with my neck...and i was in so much pain..I had pain shooting down my arms..in my shoulders..between my shoulder blades felt like something is stuck there...my whole neck was getting stiff...the pain was radiating into my chest...my hand left hand has felt like it had been asleep for 4 days...and my hands twitch...Nausea and dizziness...the same thing was happening with my legs as falling asleep....Before I had tried to make an appt at Memorial and they said it was too much of an emergency to even make an appt wanted me to go straight in.....But Yet when I get to San Joaquin...it was like they didn't care...When i finally got to see the dr..She was like your on so many pain meds i can't do much for you..( cus i also have lower back issues and fibro) and I told her I haven't taken any today because I was so nausous...She says "well why did u wait so long to come in?"...then after I tell her she says "well what do u want us to do for you"...I was like well maybe an mri ..Cuz i knew it would show more...Oh we don't do MRIs on necks...(r u kidding me what do they do when a patient comes in from an accident)Im having all kinds of nuro issues from pain and they don't want to do an MRI? I just had a feeling it wouldn't show up on a CT scan.. cuz it doesn't really show the soft tissue...and also she didn't even see where to do the CT scan Idk where he C spine ends and the T begins it could be right in the middle of them...I have had an MRI about 3 yrs ago and they said I have a compression in my neck..and even my pain management dr says it may have gotten worse and so I was worried my spine was being compressed....However she didn't examine me ..Didn't feel of my neck and where the pain was..Couldn't even tell her all that was going on because she didn't seem to care..She sent me back to the seat..where I was in extreme pain and sitting up like that was making it worse i was sooo uncomfortable..then they do a CT..and Send me BACK to the seat to wait for 4 hours for my results..where they say Nothing is wrong...I mean isn't a hospital supposed to do a full exam...make me squeeze their hands ...move my neck around..touch where it hurts ect? that is what they do at MEMORIAL...I just wanted to try a new hospital but it was a huge mistake....I came back home worse then I left...still had nausea and was in horrible pain the whole time sitting there in the chair with a neck issue...It was rediculous..they were pretty rude and not compassionate...I will NEVER go there again...Ill go Back to MEMORIAL....I never loved Memorial so much....Ishould've just left and went to Memorial.......I am now at home with same issues...ill see my dr tomorrow and hopefully get this resolved and if there is a big issue with me...Don't think I won't complain to someone else and get them in trouble....DON"T GO THERE! They need to seriously do something about their staff..including the drs..I mean what kind of dr doesn't examine you...its crazy to me...

If I could I would give 0 starts. My son was here 2 days ago. We thought he had food poisoning according to his doctor is his appendix. Because they couldn't find anything we were send home. Today we have being waiting for 3 hours. He was supposed to have an IV and a CT scan, nothing so far and that is with Doctors orders that wr handle to them when we walked in. People working in ER couldn't be more rude.

Had a kidney biopsy done and after the procedure was done they had to do some blood work. When the nurse was trying the vein she poked me multiple times, when I clearly said I was a tough stick. Many of my vein were popped and she made it seem like it was my fault. My veins are very sensitive and I asked the nurse that when she would did me my medicine through the IV, of she can go slow cause my veins hurt alot. Instead of listening she automatically shoved the morphine into the IV, that I had told her it was wrong and then my arm became to turned red and get hives all over, then as if she didn't learn the first time, she did it again. The nurses were rude, my surgeon took forever to check up on me after nurses calling him multiple times due to some compilation, however the night nurses were kind. I hope I would never have to stay another time at this hospital, this has been by far the worst hospital experience ever--and I have had many. I don't recommend this hospital at all.

Spent six hours in the ER for nothing. In those six hours non of the patients were helped. All they did was call people and do paperwork. Is paperwork going to cure people? Horrible experience.

My 8 year old fell while on a field trip and broke her wrist so I to her to the SJCH ER and that was the worst six hours of our lives. First off we were treated like we didn't belong there. The staff were the rudest people I have ever met. so after a 3 hr wait we are taking in to a cubical where we stay for about a hour just to have a nurse come in and do my daughters vitals. all the while she is crying in pain. No kind of sympathy was show to her. the we were sent back to the waiting room and called to the desk so that I could pay my bill (still have not see the doctor yet) so after a while we are called back to the same cubical where the doctor took a look at her wrist and said its not broken but we will take X-rays just in case. so after X-rays we waited for ever and then FINALLY the Doctor come out and says yes she does have a broken wrist and walked right out of the room not letting us know what was to be done next. my daughter did get her soft cast on and then we literately fast walked straight out of there. WORST PLACE EVER!!! IF AT ALL POSSIBLE STAY AWAY!

Night crew was extremely helpful and nice when the morning shift came in it was like dr jekyll and Mr hide. It was my wife that went in for a miscarriage they were rude and didn't seem to care at all. They even argued abou the medicine the night shift prescribed. They told her just to go home with nothing. She had to yell until they found it. If i were there they would have had their asses handed to them.
